Job description

Due to the unique environment that Mindvalley has in terms of having its own ecosystem of applications that support the business, working with us in a technical role is a great challenge.
We generally look for attitude over aptitude when it comes to technical skills, a history of proven execution and excellent root cause analysis problem-solving skills are things that we value highly.
We predominantly build apps with a Nginx, Unicorn, Ruby, Redis and PostgreSQL architecture on Linode so experience with any of these will be valuable to us.
The technical ecosystem is both interesting and broad covering systems that deal with:
Payment processing (both check-out and back-end)
Media streaming (live and repeated)
Serving websites to large audiences (high concurrency)
In-house customer service tools
Financial reporting
Shipping and logistics
E-mail handling (sign-ups, cohort analysis etc)
Authentication, identification and user data collection/analysis
In-house Textile based CMS for a large number of sites
Any technical role will provide a good mix of development work, systems thinking, problem-solving, business analysis with a large dose of teamwork.
Engineering Culture
We run functional teams based on the SCRUM methodology and are a fairly Agile environment, with 2-week sprints and teams with a minimum of 2 developers (preferably 3) plus a platform owner. Sprints cannot be interrupted and work is planned out well in advance to keep stress down to a minimum. We have also been experimenting with LeSS recently (Large Scale Scrum).
We have a focus on scalability, stability and code quality and we use tools such as Circle-CI and Code Climate to help with that.
